For the children characters in the story I turned to a project I had finished about a year earlier that I did for my mother who teaches elementary school. This project involved a series of posters of kids learning and playing in different ways (ie reading, music, history, etc.). I really loved some of the characters developed for this project and was eager to develop them further. These are the two main characters in the story Eliza (left ) and her best friend and neighbor Noah (right).
